N Series offers entry level data protection

Allows customers to simplify their IT environments and secure data with all-in-one scale-out backup and recovery appliances.

Arcserve has expanded its N Series range. The solutions comprehensively offer organisations integrated backup, recovery, and ransomware protection to protect their digital assets.

Arcserve N Series hyper-converged data protection appliances combine orchestrated recovery using Arcserve UDP, the flexible scale-out design of Nutanix, and ransomware protection of the backup system with Sophos Intercept X Advanced cybersecurity.

Converging industry-leading data protection technologies in a single appliance, the new Arcserve N Series allows organisations to simplify their IT environments and secure data with an all-in-one backup and recovery appliance. Arcserve N Series enables customers to protect any type and number of workloads across physical, virtual, and cloud environments.

Businesses are challenged to manage exponential data growth and maintain the high performance of critical systems while protecting vital information from ever-increasing ransomware threats. Available immediately, the new N Series appliances, named N1100-4, and N1200-4, offer a new approach to storing, managing, and protecting data that reduces complexity and TCO:

Simplicity: As hyper-converged data protection appliances from one vendor, the solutions offer a single point of contact, eliminating the need to work with multiple vendors and offering a seamless experience. The new appliances can manage data protection from a unified management console using Nutanix Prism, an automated control plane that generates actionable insights across the entire environment.

Scalability: The hyper-converged Nutanix infrastructure delivers high-performance, flexible scale-out storage to add capacity and compute on the fly, eliminating any need to plan and overprovision for unneeded capacity. Performance at scale is managed optimally with consistent performance irrespective of the scale-out state, unlike systems whose performance experience degradation with scale. A hyper-converged and unified architecture eliminates frequent additions or changes to computing resources, often required to optimise system performance.

Security: The solution offers proven recovery and market-leading Sophos cybersecurity to protect the backup system. It includes signature-based and signatureless malware detection, a deep learning neural network, anti-exploit technology, CryptoGuard anti-ransomware, and WipeGuard technologies to stop the broadest range of threats. Organizations can back up data on a security-hardened platform, isolate backups from their production environment, and safeguard backups with immutable storage.

Said Matt Urmston, executive vice president, of product management, at Arcserve: "Arcserve is removing the 'do it yourself' complexity of building and strategising a comprehensive data protection solution that includes a resilient platform, scalability needs for an expanding protection landscape, and cyber security needs. Arcserve is the only vendor that can currently offer this solution in a fully integrated fashion."

Changes come as demand increases for edge-to-core-to-cloud storage strategies.
HPE becomes first tier-one server provider to offer compute with optimized cloud-native silicon for service providers and enterprises embracing cloud-native development.
OCI coupled with Metallic data management as a service (DMaaS) enables enterprise customers to protect and secure their data against threats, adhere to local data residency laws, and ease data management and recovery.
Ingenuity Studios has selected VAST to help deliver next-level realism to a host of long- and short-form works, including feature films, television series, music videos, commercials, and more. Ingenuity Studios tapped VAST Data’s Universal Storage architecture to leapfrog the status quo by deploying a simple data storage platform that allows artists and animators to easily collaborate on projects with ultra-fast performance and low-latency, without the classic flash storage tax.
Arcserve has published the first in a series of findings of its annual independent global research study on current experiences and attitudes of IT decision-makers (ITDMs) around data protection and recovery. Key findings from the research show that ransomware attacks continue to impact organisations worldwide with high costs, but they are still largely unprepared. With 50% of respondents targeted with ransomware attacks, the research indicates the critical need for companies to take a new approach to data resilience that fortifies disaster recovery strategies, backup systems, and immutable storage solutions to prevent the loss of mission-critical data.
